[movies]Stan Lebar at the Early Television Museum - David Sica
The iconic images of man's first steps onto the moon were taken with a camera unlike any that had ever existed before.

[movies]Failed TV Pilot: "Meet The O'Briens" (1954)
Failed TV pilot called "Meet The O'Briens". Made in 1954, This TV pilot seems more like a 40's comedy short than a 50's TV program. It's easy to see why this wasn't picked up, As although it is fairly funny, they would of ran out of storylines quickly. I don't know much about this pilot. If anyone could get some info on this pilot, that would be useful.

Not sure what this is, but it appears to be one of those syndicated filler drama TV shows, aired in an quarter-hour time-slot. Closing credits are missing. Note: Contains some dated racial stereotyping. Personally, and this is just my opinion, I find the use of real locations to provide some merit to this dated short. I hope this is public domain.
